How Long Can You Keep Seeds?

Discussion in 'Advanced Growing Techniques' started by Bigdad, Mar 21, 2012.

  1. The title says it all, I'm looking to start my own seed bank, not commercial, but when I have a strain that I like, I would like to put it in my own "personal" seed bank. Just the great strains that I liked. What would be the best way to save seeds long term?

    I've had some I germinated after 20 years and I just kept them in a plastic Baggie. I wish I could give you a definitive year range but I think as long as you keep them in a dry spot that doesnt have a whole lot of fluctuating temps you'll be fine.
     
  3. Keep them cool, dark, and dry, and they can last for years. A good method is to put them into an old 35mm film canister with some uncooked rice (to absorb moisture), then put that in the back of a closet or in the refrigerator.
     
  4. yep :D


    i prefer to keep mine in my vegetable drawer.....or fruit drawer.......whichever one has less humidity, i forget :smoking:

  5. They will only keep for a week, after that you might as well ship them to me. I am licensed to properly dispose of them. (8
